Why take this product? Bone is living tissue and needs calcium and other important nutrients to support healthy bones and teeth, and support healthy bone density. You may not get enough of these ingredients through diet alone - a strong supplement can make a huge difference.
Why so many types of calcium in this formula? Simply put, more forms of calcium ensure more complete availability in the body. Each calcium salt (calcium attached to a different mineral) offers differing quantities of elemental calcium. Elemental calcium is the bottom line amount of calcium you absorb from food or a supplement. And while some calcium/mineral combinations have more elemental calcium than others, they're not always easy to absorb. For example, calcium lactate is about 32 percent absorbed while calcium citrate is approximately 30 percent absorbed. Tricalcium phosphate is an important addition to the formula because is the most prevalent form of calcium in human bone.
